Mill Korean Restaurant

Served bubbling hot, soon du bu—a concoction of marinated soft tofu, onions, clear broth, and chili powder—will scorch your lips, warm you to the bone, and leave your sinuses clear till spring ($6.95).
2895 Broadway, at 113th Street
212-666-7653

Banania Cafe

Studded with black beans that seem to dissolve on contact with your tongue and tasting vaguely of Froot Loops, Banania’s pumpkin soup is a silken, satisfying treat ($6.00).
241 Smith Street, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn

Cozy Soup 'n' Burger

Thick, savory, and clogged with giant bread crumbs, Cozy’s split-pea soup redefines words like hearty, robust, and even delicious ($2.50 small, $3.50 large).
739 Broadway, at Astor Place
212-477-5566

Hurricane Hopeful Chowder Bar

This Williamsburg haunt, which doubles as a surf shop, may well be the only restaurant in town where you can sign up for a surfing lesson while waiting for the best New England clam chowder south of Plymouth Rock ($5.50).

718-302-3535

The Crosby Connection

Served on the street from a space the size of a broom closet, the homemade lentil soup is the perfect antidote to winter—and to the restaurant’s chilly lunchtime lines ($3 small, $4 large, $7 jumbo).
